Help with Leak

We had a GREAT first weekend of camping with our 2015 Voltage. We had no problems until the end of the weekend and noticed some water on the floor right across from the forward entrance. I am guessing it is coming from the shower or the toilet. It did no happen all weekend until the third day. I do not see any access panel anywhere to see under the tub or the toilet.

What is the best way to track this down. I noticed the underbelly has some screws and in other spots it has rivets. How easy is it to remove the under belly and check it out? How easy is it to put it back together/

All your experience is helpful?

I would open the baggage compartment door on the drivers side which also gives you access to the wet bay. Take some screws out of the partition wall so you can pull the wall forward and get in behind the wet bay, get a bright flashlight and take a look at all the pluming connections maybe you will find the source of the leak in there, it's a place to start.

On my Voltage you can access under the shower and behind the tub by either removing the wood grate by the fireplace, or even removing the fireplace. Had a tiny leak there once myself.

Not sure of that floor plan but I was also able to remove my fireplace and get to a small leak under the tub/shower. Pretty common I would say.My fireplace is easy, just remove the trim piece and 4 screws and that's easy access to under the bathroom, water heater, furnace and everything on this side of the wet bay wall. Of course you can also go through the pass through if you are small enough and want to wrestle with all the excess wires and stuff.

Thanks for the advice. Sounds like I will try through the fireplace first! Looks like a project for this weekend.
